Kristen Taekman’s husband, Josh Taekman, is the latest to be named after hackers released subscriber information stolen from Ashley Madison. According to the Daily Mail, the Real Housewives of New York City star’s husband reportedly signed up for an account with the affair website in June 2011.
The Eboost founder reportedly spent thousands on the site and made 62 paid transactions. The Canada-based website, which links married men and women looking to have extramarital affairs, is free to sign up for, but subscribers have to buy credits in order to message people. A fee of $49 gives subscribers 100 credits, while $250 buys users 1,000 credits and a money-back guarantee if the user doesn’t have an affair.
The address of the credit card used on the account matches that of Josh and Kristen’s Tribeca neighborhood apartment.
The entrepreneur, who shares two kids with the model, has denied using the website. “I don’t understand. There’s not a shot in hell that I’m a subscriber. I have no knowledge of that. This is the first I’ve ever heard of it,” he told the Daily Mail. “This is crazy. I saw it on the TV the other day about the security breach and we were laughing about it. It is what it is but somebody is definitely fraudulently using my name and number.”
A source tells Us Weekly that Kristen believes her husband.
As fans of RHONY are well aware, Kristen has been vocal on the Bravo show about feeling invalidated by her husband of 10 years. The couple renewed their wedding vows after the hit reality show aired their couple’s therapy sessions during Season 7.
